    PROGRAMME 6: KIERAN BUCKLEY

    In the 1970s, Kieran Buckley spent his youth collecting birds’ eggs, fishing and shooting in the countryside around Newbridge in Co. Kildare. As he grew older he noticed many changes to the landscape and the decimation of many bird species. In the 1990s he became involved in the Grey Partridge Conservation Trust, which aims to return this bird to the countryside. Based in Lough Boora Parklands in Co. Offaly, Kieran’s dedication to this bird has helped to bring it back from the brink of extinction.
